The Edgar Allan Poe House and Museum is currently closed while the house undergoes some much-needed preservation work. The house will reopen on April 5, 2018. Don't Despair! If you are wondering what to do while the house is closed, you have options. In addition to visiting Poe's graves, explore our two pop-up exhibitions located at Carroll Mansion and the Inner Harbor's Visitors Center. The Caroll Mansion Museum at 800 E. Lombard Street is less than one city block from the site where an insensate and ill Edgar Allan Poe was discovered in the street just four days before his death in 1849. The special Poe pop-up exhibit features photos and objects from The Edgar Allan Poe House, and is included with your $5 museum admission to Carroll Mansion. The museum is open to visitors every Saturday and Sunday, from 11AM to 4PM. While you're downtown, stop into the Inner Harbor Visitor Center at 400 Light Street to see a pop-up exhibit featuring details about Poe's life and writing in Baltimore. The exhibit is FREE, and guests can also pick up a copy of the Poe House calendar (while supplies last!) The center is open to visitors every Tuesday through Sunday. Need more Poe exposure? You can also visit the various "Poe Places" located throughout Baltimore City. For more details, click on this link. We look forward to welcoming our beloved Poe House visitors in April!
